Section 25-23 Concept review--Generally.


    (a) Before preparing the preliminary plat of a major subdivision or the final plat of a minor subdivision, the subdivider shall discuss with the director the procedure for adoption of a subdivision plat and the requirements as to general layout of streets and for reservations of land, street improvements, drainage, sewerage, fire protection and similar matters, as well as the availability of existing services. The director shall also advise the applicant, when appropriate, to discuss the proposed subdivision with those city officials who must recommend approval of certain aspects of the subdivision plat coming within their jurisdiction. This concept review shall be an informal review of land use and development concepts, pertinent regulations and required public improvements. The geographic scope of this review shall include the whole property held in common ownership for which whole or partial subdivision platting is desired by the subdivider, as well as the surrounding property which might reasonably be affected by subdivision of the subject property.

    (b) The concept review is an informal discussion and review made available to the subdivider, and the subdivider may, after meeting with the director, proceed to prepare and submit a preliminary or final plat, as required for the classification of the subdivision as a major or minor subdivision.
